Key management functions have been added in V9 (2018.42). This includes naming key cards, deleting key cards, and adding key cards. Presumably you can also do those things with fobs.

I tested it by deleting an existing key card and re-adding it. You are required to swipe a different authorized key card for both actions so you can't accidentally delete your only key card.

Good stuff! Thanks, Tesla!

Very nice to know and thanks for being a beta tester on that. I would like to know which key card is which and name them (no good reason other than I'm anal), but was afraid of deleting either of them. Good to know it can be done with one known good key card. Maybe new cards will become available to order now and then we can add them ourselves at home.

On a side note for comparison I can add "chipped" keys to my Ford pickup, but I must have 2 known good keys, not just one. So if you've waited until one quits working or you lose it, you're in trouble.

Wife thought she lost her key card so I tried to delete the key card but it would not allow. Called Tesla to do it but while on hold for estimated 35 minutes found it under the couch LOL.

Glad we can now do it ourselves. she thought it might have been lost while trick or treating so I was just thinking if someone found it, bam free car as they'd be in the neighbourhood and I'm the only Tesla I've seen on the block!

I tried to delete a key card (that was lost before delivery) but it asked to swipe the same card to delete. Obviously not able to do that last I tried three days ago on latest update. Maybe allow with yesterday’s “track mode” update?
